Truckee River Keepers

A handful of awesome individuals started a “call to arms” to help protect our beloved Truckee River Fishery during these trying summer months. Currently the flows on the Truckee are being restricted due to the low amount of snow pack and severe drought conditions our region is facing. Summer and low water flows means the water temps will be on the rise.

When the Line Goes Tight is fully supporting the efforts of the Truckee River Keepers to lead by example and participate in a voluntary Hoot Owl Closure on the Truckee River.

For the months of July and August, get off the river before noon strikes, and avoid fishing in the afternoons and evenings. Also while on the river keep a river thermometer handy, once the water temps get into the high 60’s, give the fish a break and enjoy one of the other many outdoor activities our great area has to offer.

Check out the awesome video that our buddy Donald from made for this project. Once you’ve watched it, please head over to and post in their comment section to show your support for this worth while cause.

WTLGT¬†would just like to give a sincere “Thank You!” to Catch Snap & Release,¬†Mimic Fly Fishing, Gilligan’s Guide Service, Calvada Fly Fishing, and NDOW for partnering on such an important and ethical cause.
